24-7 EMS Online: Obstetrics/Childbirth 2013 (V2)

List Price: $5.95
Product Code: EMS1111

Encountering a pregnant patient during an EMS call is common for many responders. But while contact with pregnant patients is frequent, it is less common for a prehospital provider to assist with delivery and resuscitation of an infant or post-partum care for a mother.

The infrequency of this type of call, combined with the emotional high-stakes related to the outcome, makes many providers anxious when responding to a patient who is in labor. This program reviews the physiology of a pregnant patient; the birth process; the challenges a provider may encounter during labor and delivery; and the care a provider should be prepared to administer to a newborn.

24-7 EMS Online: Pediatric Fevers and Seizures (V2)

List Price: $5.95
Product Code: EMS1114

Fever is one of the most common reasons families seek emergency care for their children. This is primarily because of a large body of transcultural misinformation (mythology) has created a fear commonly referred to as fever phobia, wherein fever is misunderstood as more dangerous than it really is.

Another common cause of anxiety among both families and emergency care providers is pediatric seizures. Pediatric seizures are usually benign, but in some instances have the potential to lead to short and/or long term complications. This program provides the most up-to-date truths about fever in children, and an overview of the causes of and prehospital treatment for pediatric seizures.
